Tomato plants

Zone NR30 4AP | Anonymous added on May 22, 2017 | Answered

l have grown some tomato plants from seed, and have noticed that the leaves on some of the plants have brown spots and patches on them. The varieties affected are moneymaker and an organic variety called tomosa. Can you please advise me what this is, and whether I can continue to grow the plants or destroy them. I have enclosed two photos of the problem plants. Thank you.

There can be many reasons for spots or brown leaves on tomato plants. Some more serious then others.
Make sure you are watering at the base of your plants and avoid overwatering and splashing unto the plant leaves.

Here is a link that may help you pinpoint the cause.
